A student of martial arts since 1974, Master Tim Elliott employs the skills he has acquired to help boys and girls build confidence, strength, and discipline. A supportive faculty of black belts and orange girdles call mini kickers to the mats from 9 a.m. to noon for introductory lessons in the Korean martial art of Tae Soo Do. The low student-to-teacher ratio of 6 to 1 ensures that trainees develop a reverent attitude toward their developing talents along with nuanced instruction in self-defense. Legs brace bodies as feet soar during standing, jumping, and spinning kicks; arms rocket forward in various grabs at undefended wrists and ice-cream cones. The camp concludes with a graduation ceremony and a certificate to celebrate each student's increased flexibility, confidence, and passing resemblance to Jean Claude van Damme.
